Feb 13th 2012 1:36PM The beer garden having no Brewfest changes makes me sad.
Feb 9th 2012 12:06PM I've got some pretty exclusive stuff -- original CE pets, Murky from the original Blizzcon, the two TBC titles, the Herald of the Titans title -- and I think it'd be great to see these used more often. I'm not diminished in any way when someone else has those goodies -- frankly, I want to high-five the folks who do.
(And, frankly, if I didn't have to do a year of holiday achievements for each of my alts to get 310 flying, that wouldn't be the worst thing in the world, either.)
Jan 23rd 2012 4:34PM Weirdly, we have fewer guild tabard options than we had in WoW alpha. There were quite a few nice ones, like crossed guns, that got pulled out shortly before open beta began, with no explanation.
I'd love to have the guild bank made more robust, with filters on what could be put in. (We don't need any more green crap you got from leveling, no matter how much you're sure someone does.) A filter that only allowed flask components, for instance, would actually make the guild bank useful for some guilds.
Jan 22nd 2012 12:25PM After Titan, I bet Warcraft IV is the next full game announced by Blizzard. WoW will be more than 10 years old at that point, and they can use Warcraft IV to move the timeline forward a few years -- explicitly this time, not the "we think a year has passed between expansions" jazz we go through now -- and it'll let them use everything they've learned in making StarCraft II to one-up Warcraft III.
That said, I don't expect to hear about it until at least Blizzcon 2013 or 2014.
Jan 16th 2012 5:24PM If you're looking for awesome new music that you don't have to individually hunt down -- because, let's be honest, most of your friends' tastes in music sucks -- check out the podcasts from KEXP (Music that Matters is their best one), KCRW and I'm a big favor of That Sound Radio.
Jan 11th 2012 12:56PM blazenor, if you think any gaming company has bad customer service, call your cell phone company to change your plan or, better yet, to dispute a charge. Also fun: giant banks like Bank of America, who will happily charge you hundreds of dollars by accident and then refuse to waive all of the bounced check fees that result after they wipe out the initial charges.
Jan 6th 2012 8:33PM The Dark Irons who are loyal to Moira's son aren't particularly militaristic, really. They're just a more secular version of the Twilight Hammer-aligned faction of Dark Irons. (Imagine this is post-war Iraq, which is really hammered home in Searing Gorge.) They don't have anything particularly in common with the Horde, especially since they just need to wait to have their heir become the ruler of a unified dwarven kingdom that spans a large portion of the Eastern Kingdoms.
Jan 3rd 2012 1:05PM There's apparently more to the story, given the stuff the NPCs say and the stuff mentioned in the quest dialogues. It's unlikely Blizzard will ever get around to telling us what it is, though, outside of, maybe, a comic book.
Jan 3rd 2012 1:04PM I'm partial to the music from Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim. Diablo II also has good music.
